Readers.com is pleased to offer International Shipping! Packages usually arrive within 5-7 business days and are insured against lost or damage at no additional cost. International shipping rates start at $23.95 and are non-refundable. All customs fees and duties are the responsibility of the customer. You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches your country. Readers.com is not able to have control over customs duties and import fees and is unable to predict their cost. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so be sure to contact your local customs office for further information! At times, Customs policies may also delay the delivery of your package. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over how long a package will take to get through Customs, and cannot be responsible for any delays experienced. Please be aware that USPS Priority Mail Express will require a signature upon delivery. To provide safety and security for all online shoppers, international customers may be asked to fax a copy of their photo identification and both sides of their credit card before their order is processed.
We love shipping to our military friends! Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee delivery time to military addresses. It takes 1-3 days for Priority Mail to arrive at the primary military post office, and 2-9 days for First-Class Mail. From there, the package is under the control of the military mail system. Your order should arrive in about the same amount of time as other packages from the U.S. (in most cases, 7-14 days). The actual transit time depends on where you are stationed. If you have any problems entering your APO/FPO address information, please contact Customer Service by email atÂ firstname.lastname@example.org. We will happily answer within 24 hours.
Packages shipped within the United States are shipped with a delivery confirmation number. This means your tracking information will not be available until your order has been delivered. It is not uncommon for packages to show only confirmation of delivery, and not an origin scan. Please be aware that the USPS provides only a delivery confirmation service for most destinations, not a tracking service. USPS delivery confirmation services are designed to be a low-cost alternative to full tracking and primarily provide delivery information. Confirmation of delivery or attempted delivery is provided. Information is generally available on the evening of the date of delivery or attempted delivery.
All shipments will be considered lost if they have not arrived after 20 business days. Orders lost due to incomplete address information provided by the customer are the responsibility of the customer and, unfortunately, not eligible for a refund.
We want to make sure our packages get to you as quickly and painlessly as possible. Packages returned to us because of an incorrect or incomplete address may be assessed a 20% surcharge.
We guarantee that your package will be delivered to the address you provided to us. If your package is lost by the carrier, we'll replace it â€” free of charge!
Every package we send has a delivery confirmation number. This is our proof of delivery. If your package is lost, and the carrier cannot give us confirmation of delivery, we will send you a replacement of your order at no cost to you. (If the carrier has proof of delivery, yet you did not receive your package, you will need to file a claim directly with the carrier using the delivery confirmation number we will provide for you.) This guarantee does not cover replacement of items damaged by incorrect handling or carelessness. All replacement orders will be mailed via USPS First-Class Mail.
- Please allow enough time for the carrier to deliver your package. In the case of the USPS, it can take up to 20 business days to deliver your package. Please wait the required amount of time before notifying us of an undelivered package.
- Please notify us by email if your package has not arrived or if you received damaged merchandise.
- If the carrier can provide confirmation that the package was delivered, we will be unable to send a replacement. Please make sure to check with neighbors, the front office, other family members, or those in your apartment complex who might have gotten the package by mistake.
